Back in 1976, nobody really knew that there was an old wave of British Heavy Metal. But within 2 years of their formation, Iron Maiden had spearheaded what came to be abbreviated the NWOBHM, and as with punk the year before, a new generation of performers, musicians and show-offs brought in a New Wave of the rock genre - and in the process made loud, raw, heavy music the global phenomenon it is today For the first time this film investigates the New Wave – the bands, the records, the media and the series of unconnected events that led to the unfolding of this astonishing, durable and still hugely relevant form Focusing on Maiden and the other pivotal bands of the time, this documentary features rare footage, live and studio recordings of pivotal tracks, news items and film of the movement from the time as it unfolded around the UK, and seldom seen photographs

Exclusive interviews with many of the major players including Iron Maiden’s Paul Di’ Anno and Dennis Stratton, Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler, Tygers of Pan Tang’s Rob Weir, Damson’s legendary drummer Thundersticks, Tino and Chris Troy from Praying Mantis, the current line-up of Girlschool and many other high profile names from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal Commentary, review and expertise is provided by Malcolm Dome (Kerrang, Classic Rock), Jerry Ewing (Metal Hammer, Classic Rock), Geoff Barton, Garry Bushell, Neil Kay (legendary metal DJ from the Soundhouse club) and British metal author and journalist, Joel McIver
